Château Pape Clément, located in the Pessac-Léognan appellation of Bordeaux, France, is one of the oldest estates in the region, with viticultural history dating back to the 13th century. Named after Pope Clement V, who once owned the vineyard, this prestigious estate produces highly acclaimed red and white wines. Spanning 60 hectares, its vineyards are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, and Sémillon. The wines of Château Pape Clément are celebrated for their elegance, complexity, and balance, often exhibiting notes of ripe fruit, floral elements, and a refined minerality. As a Grand Cru Classé de Graves, it stands as a testament to Bordeaux's rich winemaking heritage and excellence.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Wine Independent: 93-95/100
The 2023 Pape Clement has a deep garnet-purple color. The nose is very shut down to begin, needing a lot of shaking to wake up notes of stewed plums, crème de cassis, and blueberry preserves, plus suggestions of tar, licorice, dried herbs and crushed rocks. The medium to full-bodied palate is bright and juicy, textured by fine-grained tannins, finishing with impressive tension and length.

Jane Anson: 93/100
Inky depths to the plum colour; as is often the case with Pape Clement even under the new regime of the past few vintages where new oak has been lowered. Delivers an exuberant, confident estate signature, supple texture, roasted black cherry and cherry pit, cocoa bean, espresso, a cushion of air helps give a lift on the finish to what is a fairly highly charged architecture. 35hl/ha yield.
